Show Summary Details


This chapter outlines the methodology used for the research and reports on the pilot study completed in 1997. Funding for the project came from a number of sources, including the University of Hull, a NHS trust and a health authority. The study was fuelled by a desire to understand the response of a range of health and social care agencies to two contrasting sets of needs in families. The study explored the nature of serious mental health problems in mothers whose children were on the child protection register, and examined the extent to which different professionals worked together to meet the family's needs.
